Reviews


80
The Guardian - Catherine Shoard
The Riot Club hands its audience a ticket, as well as a free pass to pour scorn over proceedings. That's a double-bill which should prove pretty irresistible.

Variety - Peter Debruge
Scherfig approaches the milieu with shrewd anthropological wit, amplifying Wade’s research with her own keen outsider insights — this on top of an expert grasp of tension and tone as the club’s initial allure turns to anxiety and disgust.
60
CineVue - Ben Nicholson
It makes for entertaining viewing but its power is undermined by a ultimate lack of insight amongst the debauchery.
60
The Telegraph - Tim Robey
Some of the supporting performances are so hammily spiteful and giggly they let the side down, but the film is perfectly cast in its main roles.
60
Empire - Unnamed
Well played across the board, The Riot Club is an entertaining glimpse into the dark side of privilege. Yet it lacks the richness and insight to be anything more.
